    The Action cubes are a great addition if you already have the Story cubes! Or buy this one first and then add on the other ... The Creativity Hub Rory's Story Cubes
    They can be used alone but mixed together the stories can now get more interesting and fun.
    The cubes are the same great quality as the Story cubes and identical shape - great that they are printed in blue so you can tell them apart and pack them away easily.

    I bought the 3 sets or story cubes for my kids (5,5,4) and they are really enjoying them - clear 5 stars.
    However there is a quality difference in the stories from the green and orange to this blue set.
    Compared to orange/green sets, the blue pictures have less interpretations and less interactions between them - the blue stories tend to become a sequence of actions without plots. Also the youngest (4) has more problems interpreting the complex blue pictures than she has with the other colours.

    If using the cubes for teaching languages or creative writing, the blue set is a must-have addition (the blues are all verbs, the others substantives), but as a kids/family game i would recommend the orange and green sets before the blue.
    3 stars as stand-alone, 5 stars if filling out the set.

    As is usually the case with games, the most simple ideas are often the best. How much easier to play could a game be than picking up a handful of 'story cube' dice throwing them on the table and then, letting your imagination be guided by the combination of random images your throw has provided, either writing or telling a story beginning with 'Once Upon A Time'?

    Rory's Story Cubes are not only educational, fun, and challenging they are perfect for parties when late in the hour the dancing has ceased and people are chatting around a table with a glass of wine. Writing clubs will also find them an invaluable tool for inspiring great works from members at workshops and the best thing about them is that there are millions of possible combinations so no two workshops will ever be the same!

    The cubes come in a really tough little box with a magnetic fastener (nice touch!). They are of good quality manufacture and even repeated use is unlikely to cause any of the print to come off unlike many other cheap dice games.

    Add to the fun the fact that other 'themed' sets ('Voyages' & A 'Random' set') of 'Story Cubes' are also available and can be 'mixed & matched' together in any combination you choose and you have a simple game with endless twists and turns that will keep you and your friends amused until the end of time!

    My one reservation about this 'Actions' set is that some of the depictions on the die are difficult to determine (there are no explanations contained in the small rules booklet either) and this can trip you up when in full flow of your story. It also makes this set hard for kids to understand and so I would suggest this set is more suited as an 'add on' for experienced players than for all ages. Other than this minor quibble though this product is highly recommended.

    Bought these as my daughter is a bit of a book worm and loves writing stories however she does get stuck for ideas at times. She is 9 years old. We took this with us to a family wedding in my bag and my daughter and cousins thought it was great fun making up stories. The kids spend ages doing this and everyone thought it was a good laugh including the adults.
    Would recommend to children who love stories but don't want to write things down.

    I bought this action themed set together with the original Rory's story cubes (orange set), which I have already reviewed.

    The action set is an add-on set of story cubes to compliment the original set, but they can also be played without the orange set.
    Thats one of the reasons, I like Rory's story cubes, because of the unique playing experience that does not mean you must buy all of the add-ons to get to play.
    I like the variations in the themes that allow you to mix and match or just own one set.
    These toys are a breath of fresh air amongst all the gimmicky and lazy electronic games.

    I wouldn't purchase these stand-alone as we found it slightly tricky to come up with stories that aren't just a list of simple actions. Having said that, these dice are a great add-on to the other Rory's Story Cubes sets: Original and Voyages. Some symbols are a little hard to decipher at first but after a good look you'll hit yourself on the head for being so silly - of course! It's a person climbing a tree!

    Dice themselves - 19mm, for anybody wondering or looking to incorporate them into a wider game using self-made dice - are extremely well made and boast an unprecedented high-quality. A simple game that can be built upon using pure creativity and imagination: add a timer, points for competitive play, etc. Endless possibilities. Worth every penny!
